Demba Ba suffers horrific leg break playing for Shangai Shenhu (Video)

Thoughts are very much with Newcastle and Chelsea alumni Demba Ba after the striker suffered a horrific leg break playing for Chinese Super League side Shangai Shenhu.


Playing against rivals Shanghai SIPG, Ba can be seen in the below video collapsing during a challenge with another player, with his trailing left peg giving way beneath the knee as he fell down.

Up until the incident the forward was the division’s top scorer with 14 goals in 18 games this season. After the incident, Shenhua’s coach Gregorio Manzano commented: “It could end his professional career.”


Adding to that grim footage, Ba’s Radiography pictures have been released.

Gruesome stuff.

Whilst the Senegalese international faces a long, intensive road to recovery, lets hope we see the striker playing again.
